Oops, wrong holiday… They feel so much alike though with all the goodies and the baskets, and my one-year-old is wearing bunny slippers, a bike helmet, and sunglasses right now, which sort of resembles a costume.
My daughters’ favorite Easter basket goodies are the temporary tattoos (of course) and ChapStick. They both stopped when they got to the lip balm, insisted on opening it, and coated their lips for about five minutes before returning to their Easter baskets to see what else the Bunny had brought them. Are anyone else’s kids as fanatical about lip balm as mine are?
My one-year-old opened each of her plastic eggs and ate everything mid-egg hunt, while my four-year-old got critical about what was inside the eggs and started discarding things into the trash or trying to pawn goodies that didn’t meet her high standard off onto her little sister. The only thing she ate was one Reese’s peanut butter cup. Afterward, she hid all the empty eggs, so that they could play egg hunt over again.
My four-year-old loved the butterfly net she received, exclaiming with glee, “This is just what I’ve always wanted for weeks and weeks! I’m going to catch butterflies and grasshoppers!”
She recently wrote her first book, complete with colorful picture illustrations. It is a story about a grasshopper who hurts his leg playing soccer.
